SWALE, Rosie Children of Cape Horn. London : Paul Elek, (1974). First Edition. Pp (10),[11]-242,(6) + 16 p of plates. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Toy 0752. A gruelling family vacation: the Swales and their two young children become the first to round Cape Horn in a catamaran, in the course of an eighteen-month voyage from Plymouth, England to Sydney, Australia and back. The narrative is presented in an appropriately breezy, anecdotal style that conveys the mildness of the Marquesas and the harshness of theRoaring Forties with equal felicity. Very good in dustjacket. Signed by Ro sie and Colin Swale. 48.00
